    It is a really beautiful venue and the people that work there are friendly and helpful. We had lunch at the winery overlooking the hill top of growing vines. The lunch we had was fresh, light, healthy and a perfect accompaniment to the wine flight we tried. Oops, I bought eight bottles to go and joined the "Club."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Hill Top Ranch Winery! This is a gem in Valley Center, the tranquil view transports you to a place of relaxation. The food was outstanding and the wine flights (5 Whites, 5 Reds) were creatively presented and we enjoyed them so much we became wine club members on the spot. Service was attentive. We look forward to a return visit - and another beautiful sunset view!

    I have visited Hilltop multiple times. I absolutely love the ambiance and the view! The food is delicious, but quite costly. We had a mistake with our food order, but we ate it anyway since the kitchen was closing. It’s too bad they don’t stay open a little later since the sun wasn’t down yet. It’s a stunning outdoor experience.

    Great lunch - best coleslaw I have ever eaten. Lovely setting - hostess/waitress was very friendly. Only have a couple negatives - it was a tad chilly on the patio - could have used a couple heaters outside. Also no water offered except bottled water. Other than those minor things, it was great. Wine was super!

    Great evening with good food and wine. The LED lights that came on after sunset outside were off putting. The light was to harsh. Softer lighting would go a long way. Other than that. Wonderful experience!

    Beautiful location, excellent service and delicious food. The wine special they have is amazing as well, buy 2 bottles and get a third one free from a nice selection. My only negative is that they only serve bottled water at 2.00 a piece. It just seems ridiculous and unnecessary. They also do not have ice which seems odd for a full service restaurant. Not an issue that will keep me from returning!

    Wine was only so so. Food was pretty good but they wanted $4 for more bread Toast to go with the Brie and spinach dip. Also no water provided, $2 for a small bottle of water. Not a great value.

    We were back here and had a glass of wine and an appetizer around the sunset. Gourmet food although the menu is limited. Wine is OK, good. Nice and friendly service. Relaxing outdoor patio looking at open space toward west. Because of the hill in the view, the sun sets a bit earlier than the actual sunset time. Now they are open till 7:30 on Saturdays so we can enjoy the sunset and stay afterwards as well. $40 for two glasses of wine and a nice appetizer with relaxing outdoor ambience seems reasonable. We will be back!

    Along with our tasting flights, we much appreciated the delicious baked brie and charcuterie board (we asked for additional baguette bread for the three of us to make the most of the charcuterie). We chose to sit out on the otherwise empty patio even though it was a cold, wet New Year's Eve. The server promptly brought a heater, and we enjoyed the lovely view before the rain clouds rolled in. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Would happily return there to enjoy a meal in such a peaceful setting.
